More tiresome Lani. Who cares, who cares, who cares? Show of hands. Nessa's all, "We think you got a raw deal, we'd like to make it up to you." Then comp her already. It's worked on so many other occasions. Anyway, Nessa follows Big Ed's advice to find out what Lani wants. Turns out the kid's got acting ambitions. Nessa grins.
And now it's nearly showtime. Danny walks by as a security guard does things to Mr. Trevathan with a metal detector that would, in some countries, make them married. In this country, it's just called "being Ashcrofted." Danny stalks on by, and then goes tearing in the opposite direction on a false lead concerning a big fashion Don't in an old denim shirt. After a brief and stupid chase scene, Danny tackles the guy, and it turns out he was only running because he had a fake Janet Ellis ticket. Mike is holding the guy against the wall, the guy is babbling a lot, Danny is looking at the ticket, and then the guy pees his pants in terror. Mike sums it all up with, "Damn." I'm no Aaron with the stats, but this is the second pee-the-pants incident in eight episodes, so if history is any indication, we're looking at a 25 percent chance of pee on the floor in any given episode.
Mary comes into the scene laughing as Mike and Danny are disgustedly calling for housekeeping. She's off to get Kiki and transport the fluffball in its Louis Vuitton carrying case. As Mary saunters off with a swing in her step, Mike watches her go and calls, "Good to see you, Mary. Great to see you, Mary. Wonderful to see you, Mary." Danny's all, "Hey, hey!" and Mike turns around to crack, "What? I can't be cordial? Why do you feel threatened by our friendship?" Heh. I wonder how many of his lines James Lesure ad-libs.
Mary enters the dressing room, where we see a well-appointed table and a covered plate. I have a total flashback to Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? Mary, however, does not share my fascination with Bette Davis movies, She whistles for the dog, but panics a little when it fails to show, and then freaks into call-Danny territory when she notices that Kiki and its luxe little collar have been parted. It's all very dramatic.
